From a nature-lover's point of view, Ethiopia's natural environment mirrors the richness and uniqueness of its people and their cultures.
More than a dozen wildlife reserves lie within the country's borders and with a wealth of indigenous animal and plant life that can be found nowhere else in Africa, Ethiopia promises a highly memorable and abundant tour. Wildlife aside, Tissisat, or The Blue Nile Falls, numbers among the most popular and stunning natural sights of interest in Africa and the rugged mountains that perforate the landscape make for some breathtaking panoramas, as well as serving as ideal climbing or hiking locations.
Ethiopia is largely overlooked as a viable tour destination; an unfortunate state of affairs that means that travellers often sacrifice an opportunity to explore one of the most absorbing and rewarding tour destinations in Africa and, indeed, the world. With more than a dozen reserves housing indigenous and endemic wildlife and plantlife, as well as breathtaking mountainscapes and magnificent, roaring waterfalls, the natural environment in Ethiopia rivals any other African country and its urban centres and rural lands prove just as memorable.
